TAKING THE LONG WAY HOME, MY DARLIN

THERE WAS A TIME I THOUGHT THAT I WOULD NEVER EVER FIND
THE LOVE THAT I WAS LONGING FOR IN MY HEART
IT MADE ME ACHE TO THINK THAT I'D SPEND MY LIFETIME ALL ALONE
WHEN I LEAST EXPECTED LOVE TO FIND ME YOU WALKED IN
YOU REVEALED YOUR HEART TO ME AND THEN I SHOWED YOU MINE
AND NOW WE'RE HERE TOGETHER SHARING A LOVE SO DIVINE

I'M READY TO GIVE, AND I'M READY TO LIVE
READY TO TRY TO OPEN UP MY HEART
AND I'M READY TO SOAR TO HEAVEN AND TO YOU
OH YES I'M FINALLY READY, I'M READY TO LOVE

I DIDN'T KNOW THAT LOVE WOULD FIND ME UNTIL YOUR HEART TOUCHED MINE
AND NOW I LOVE YOU LIKE THE SUN IT LOVES TO SHINE
AND I NEVER THOUGHT I'D FALL COMPELETLY LIKE RAINDROPS FALLING DOWN
JOY HAS FILLED MY LIFE AND I'M FINALLY READY TO LOVE

YOU'RE THE LIGHT THAT SHINES ON ME, YOU MAKE MY LIFE SO SWEET
YOU KNEW EXACTLY WHAT TO DO TO WIN MY HEART
I WAS HIDING PAIN BEHIND A SMILE BUT YOU, YOU FOUND ME OUT
IN THE GLOW OF YOUR COMPASSION I FELT SAFE TO TRY
GLORY RAN THROUGH MY SOUL IT SET MY HEART ON FIRE
AND I KNEW THAT I WOULD LEAVE BEHIND MY SORROW AND JOIN YOU FOR LIFE
I'M GOING STAND BESIDE YOU FOR THE REST OF MY LIFE

I'M READY TO GIVE, AND I'M READY TO LIVE
READY TO TRY TO OPEN UP MY HEART
AND I'M READY TO SOAR TO HEAVEN AND TO YOU
OH YES I'M FINALLY READY, I'M READY TO LOVE

Thank You

YOU'VE GOT TO TAKE THIS FEELING AND FLY
COME ON DON'T DENY, IT FEELS SO GOOD TO BE ALIVE
TAKE THIS MOMENT AND LIVE
YOU'VE GOT A LOT TO GIVE, NO TIME FOR STANDING BY

NOW IS THE TIME TO STEP INTO YOUR LIFE
OPEN UP YOUR EYES
SEE THE WONDERS RIGHT IN FRONT OF.....
TIME YOUR ENEMY OR FRIEND
BUT THAT ALL DEPENDS ON HOW YOU SPEND YOUR LIFE

YOU'VE GOT TO TAKE THIS MOMENT AND LIVE
TAKE THE FEELINGS TOO, TAKE EVERYTHING THAT'S GIVEN TO YOU
SOON YOU WILL REALIZE, IT'S LATER THAN YOU THINK
YOU COULD BE ON THE BRINK

THERE COMES A TIME IT'S EITHER SINK OR SWIM
TROUBLE IS YOUR FRIEND
IF SHARKS WERE IN THE POOL THEN YOU'D JUMP OUT
THEN YOU'D START TO SEE, YOU DIDN'T EVEN THINK ABOUT YESTERDAY'S DEFEAT

THROW YOUR HANDS UP AND DANCE
TAKE THIS PRECIOUS CHANCE TO SPREAD THE JOY YOU FEEL INSIDE
DON'T YOU LIVE IN THE PAST
MISS OUT ON SWEET ROMANCE
THROW UP YOUR HANDS AND DANCE

Song For The Souls That Go Before (From The Hearts Left Behind)
(Patricia Cathcart Andress)
© 2000 Grey Kitty Music (BMI)

IN A SILENT PLACE, I HONOR YOUR PASSING
SACRED DOOR I CANNOT ENTER YET OR GO BEHIND
DEEP HOLY MYSTERY BRINGS SADNESS THAT I CAN'T CONTAIN
MY HEART IS OVERFLOWING, THE SPIRITS LEFT BEHIND

IN SILENT PLACE I HONOR YOUR LEAVING
SONG TO THE SOUL THAT GOES BEFORE
FROM THE HEART THAT'S LEFT BEHIND
DEEP HOLY MYSTERY BRINGS A SORROW THAT I CAN'T CONTAIN
HELP ME MAKE IT THROUGH ANOTHER DAY OH MY HEART IS ACHING

I KNOW WHAT LIFE IS LIKE
I KNOW THAT ENERGY NEVER DIES OR FADES AWAY
I KNOW THAT SPIRIT GOES ON AND ON ON AND ON AND ON
BUT EVEN THOUGH I KNOW THESE THINGS IN THE DEEPEST, TRUEST PART OF ME
MY HEART IS BREAKING STILL, OH MY HEART IS ACHING
BECAUSE I WILL NEVER SEE YOUR PRECIOUS FACE AGAIN

IN A SILENT PLACE, I RISE TO MEET SORROW
FACE TO FACE, I'VE GOT TO MOURN BEFORE THE HEALING STARTS
FEELIN' THE MISERY IN EVERY SINGLE BREATH I TAKE
BONE DEEP UNDERSTANDING DARLIN' THAT YOU WON'T BE BACK

I KNOW WHAT LIFE IS LIKE
I KNOW THAT ENERGY NEVER DIES OR FADES AWAY, NEVER FADES AWAY
I KNOW THAT THE SPIRIT GOES ON AND ON AND ON, AH YOU KNOW I KNOW THESE THINGS
IN THE DEEPEST, TRUEST PART OF ME MY HEART IS BREAKING STILL
BECAUSE FOR THE REST OF MY LIFE NOT IN THIS TIME AND SPACE
I WILL NEVER NEVER NEVER NEVER SEE YOUR PRECIOUS FACE

I WAS A CHILD WHEN I KNEW THAT A SONG WOULD BE MY LIFELINE
I LAY DREAMING WEN SHE CAME AND SHE SANG HER SECRETS TO ME
SHE SANG ABOUT A LOVE SUPREME, AND A HEAVEN SHE SAID I WOULD
SURELY SOMEDAY SEE. AND THEN SHE TOOK ME IN HER ARMS AND
SANG ME ALL THE WAY TO FREEDOM

THEN SHE LED ME AND PLACED ME IN THE MIDDLE OF A CIRCLE
WHERE SPIRIT SINGERS EMBRACED ME AND TOLD ME MY TRUE CALLING
THEY SAID YOU'LL HAVE TO CRY SOMETIMES JUST TO KEEP THE SACRED
SONG INSIDE OF YOU ALIVE, BUT AS YOU SING IT FROM YOUR HEART
YOU KNOW WE'RE SINGING RIGHT BESIDE YOU

SINGING..........FREEDOM........CALLING
THROWING OUT A LIFELINE
LIFELINE.......LIFELINE
THROWING OUT A LIFELINE

AS THE LIGHT FELL I KNEW SHE HAD SUNG AWAY MY SORROWS
TAUGHT ME MY OWN SONG TO SING ME THROUGH ALL OF MY TOMORROWS
NO LONGER NEEDING PAIN OR SHAME, NO HEARTACHE ON THIS MORNING
FILLED WITH HEALING RAIN. I KNOW WE WILL NEVER PART
MY SPIRIT SINGER HERE BESIDE ME

You Ain't Seen Nothing Yet

ONE DAY A FRIEND OF MINE WHO WAS 93
TOOK MY LOVE AND ME OUTSIDE AND SAT US UNDERNEATH A MAGNOLIA TREE
SHE SAID YOU'RE SO IN LOVE, I CAN SEE IT YOUR EYES
IT LOOKS LIKE BOTH OF YOU HAVE FOUND YOUR PARADISE
BUT WHILE YOU'RE SITTING HERE BASKING IN THE GLOW
YOU'VE GOT TO PLAN FOR THE DAY WHEN THE LOVE MAY UP AND GO
JUST WHEN YOU THINK "IT CAN'T HAPPEN HERE," LOVE WILL PUT YOU TO THE TEST
YOU BETTER HANG ON TO YOUR HATS MY DARLINGS
'CAUSE YOU AIN'T SEEN NOTHING YET

YOU SAY YOU'RE WALKIN ON AIR
YOU CAN'T BELEIVE THAT YOU COULD FEEL THIS WAY
YOU CAN'T BELIEVE THAT IT'S TRUE
THAT SOMETHING FEELING THIS GOOD
IT COULD BE HAPPENING TO YOU
SOMETIMES YOU KNOW IT'S GONNA GET REAL TOUGH
AND YOU WILL FEEL JUST LIKE YOU HAVE TO GIVE YOUR GOOD LOVE UP
BUT THAT'S THE TIME YOU'VE GOT TO STAY
WHEN THERE IS NOTHING LEFT TO GIVE
LOVE IS GONNA PUT YOU TO THE TEST
SO HANG ON, YOU AIN'T SEEN NOTHING YET

CAUSE WHEN YOU TALK ABOUT A LOVE FOR LIFE
YOU NEVER KNOW WHAT THE MASTER PLAN HAS IN SIGHT
THE MORE YOU GIVE THE MORE YOU GET
YOU DIDN'T REALIZE WHEN YOU FIRST MET
THAT TRUE LOVE HAS NO BEGINNING
AND NO END HAS BEEN FOUND YET

THERE'S ONE MORE THING I WANT BOTH OF YOU TO KNOW
IT TOOK A WHOLE LOT OF LOVE JUST TO MAKE THIS OLD TREE GROW
THE SAME APPLIES TO THE LOVE YOU FEEL RIGHT NOW
YOU GOT TO TEND IT FAITHFULLY NOT TO LET IT DIE
I HOPE YOU ALWAYS REMEMBER THIS PRECIOUS DAY
AND THE PROMISES YOU HAVE MADE
YOU'LL BE TOGETHER FOR A LIFETIME IF YOU FOLLOW THIS PACT
IF LOVE WALKS OUT THE DOOR THEN YOU GOTTA GO OUT AND GET IT BACK
CAUSE LOVE IS GONNA PUT YOU TO THE TEST
YOU AIN'T SEEN NOTHING YET

JUST PLAN IT OUT. THERE IS NO DOUBT
YOU CAN MAKE IT TOGETHER THROUGH ANY KIND OF WEATHER
TAKE A STAND, MAKE IT STRONG, YOU'LL SURVIVE WHEN HOPE IS GONE

THERE COMES A TIME WHEN
YOU HAVE GOT TO WALK INTO THE LIONS MOUTH ALONE
UNLIKE WHAT YOU'VE BEEN TOLD
ACKNOWLEDGED FEAR WILL BRING A SWEET RELIEF
THE WORST WILL BRING THE BEST
IN TIME THE PAIN A JOY UNKNOWN

SO FOLLOW ME WITH COURAGE
RIGHT INTO THE DARKEST PLACE YOU KNOW
WE'LL SHINE THE LIGHT OF KNOWLEDGE THERE
AND LET THE TRUTH BE KNOWN
TO ALL WHO SEEK, WE'LL CARVE A PATH TO PEACE

FEAR IS A CHAIN THAT'S WHY YOU REMAIN
LOCKED UP IN THIS PRISON THAT YOU CAN'T EVEN SEE
THE TIME HAS COME MY FRIEND
I BELIEVE YOU'VE REACHEDTHE END
OF PRETENDING THIS IS HOW YOU WANT YOUR LIFE TO BE

YOU HAVE TO GO INSIDE TO FIND A WAY OUT
YOUR MOMENT NOW HAS COME, YOUR WORK HAS JUST BEGUN
SO TAKE MY HAND AND I WILL WALK BESIDE YOU
YOU'RE SCARED AND I AM TOO
BUT TOGETHER WE CAN MAKE IT ON THROUGH

SO FOLLOW ME WITH COURAGE
RIGHT INTO THE DARKEST PLACE YOU KNOW
WE'LL SHINE THE LIGHT OF KNOWLEDGE THERE
AND LET THE TRUTH BE KNOWN
TO ALL WHO SEEK, WE'LL CARVE A PATH TO PEACE

This Life, This Light

HOW DO YOU SPEAK OF A MOONLIT NIGHT
HOW DO YOU EXPLAIN A SOFT CARESS
SOMETIMES IT SEEMS WE CAN ONLY SIGH
THIS LIGHT, THIS LIFE, THIS LIGHT

HOW DO YOU DESCRIBE A BABY'S FIRST BREATH
OR TAKE THIS RAPTURE AND HOLD IT IN YOUR HAND
CONSUMED WITH WONDER, YOU CAN ONLY CRY
THIS LIGHT, THIS LIFE, THIS LIGHT

A THOUSAND SACRED WHISPERS FLOOD ME
WITH VISIONS SWEET ESSENTIAL GIFT
LIKE A KISS
LIKE LANGUAGE FELT
WHISPERING ACHE AWAY
THIS LIGHT, THIS LIFE, THIS LIGHT

WHEN YOU THINK ABOUT THE BEAUTY
WHEN YOU RISE TO THE OCCASION
WHEN YOU KNOW IT IN YOUR SOUL THAT THERE IS NOTHING TO EXPLAIN
IT'S A MYSTERY HOW OUR SPIRITS DO COLLIDE
THIS LIGHT, THIS LIFE, THIS LIGHT

WAS IT A MOMENT OR A LIFETIME
EPIPHANY OR SWEET REGRET
WAS IT THE FLOWER OR THE HONEY
CAN YOU REMEMBER HOW IT FELT
THIS LIGHT, THIS LIFE, THIS LIGHT
